More Snow Makes Des Moines Vehicle Shipping Tougher
Last year, right about this time actually, we talked about how Des Moines was getting smacked with a snowstorm. This year is no different. Snow is going to make Des Moines vehicle shipping services tougher this week.
And it’s not just Des Moines. The entire area is going to be inundated with snow throughout the rest of this week. It started last night, and looks like it’s going to continue to head east until it reaches the Atlantic seaboard east of New England.
It’s April. Shouldn’t we be gearing up for rain and sun instead of snow?
What to expect with Des Moines vehicle shipping this week
Like we wrote last year, we don’t know 100% how bad the weather will be. But we do know that carriers don’t like winter weather. It’s such a major factor in car transportation services that we talk about it all the time on this website. Winter weather can shut down routes, reroute carriers, cause damage to vehicles in transit, cause dangerous conditions that lead to damage, and more. It’s not surprising carriers avoid it if they can.
At the same time, Des Moines isn’t all that popular among customers. Especially when compared to Minneapolis, which will also be receiving some wintry weather this week. Or Chicago, which this storm will likely hit later in the week.
These areas are bigger car transport markets which could see price hikes, delays in pickup or delivery, longer wait times for dispatch, and more. Winter weather sucks, so make sure to talk to an agent and prepare yourself for what’s pretty much already here.
